PHOEBE BRIDGERS PREMIERES NEW SONG “FUNERAL” VIA ZANE LOWE’S BEATS1 SHOW
Debut album Stranger In The Alps out
Friday September 22 on Dead Oceans via Inertia Music
Phoebe Bridgers has premiered her new song “Funeral” via Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show. The stunning, poignant track is the third preview song – following “Smoke Signals” and “Motion Sickness” – released from the young LA-based songwriter’s debut album Stranger In The Alps, which will be out on next Friday September 22 on Dead Oceans via Inertia Music.
The album and its singles has been garnering early high praise from outlets including NPR Music, Billboard, The FADER, Stereogum, Uproxx, Consequence Of Sound (“Artist of the Month“, “25 Most Anticipated Albums of Fall 2017“), Paste (“The 15 Albums We’re Most Excited About For September“), and Brooklyn Vegan (“17 Anticipated Indie Rock Albums of 2017“), among many others. Stranger In The Alps is available for pre-order, with all three singles coming as instant grat downloads with purchase.
Bridgers, who is currently on the road with Conor Oberst, recently announced a handful of early October shows in support of The War On Drugs along the west coast of the USA. She is also confirmed to support Noah Gundersen throughout the southwest and west coast in November.
Produced by Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska, and mixed by Mike Mogis, the ten haunting and introspective songs on Stranger In The Alps further introduce the 22-year-old Bridgers as a singular voice. There is a delicate balance to her work, a dance between veiled narratives and earnest emotions, between whispers and shouts. Throughout the album, Bridgers contemplates and reflects on personal experiences through her unique lyric writing perspective: there are overt references to lost idols, canonical pop songs and actual incidents, but her stories unfold through specific, evocative imagery sung in her subtle, confessional style. And according to Bridgers, everything you hear has arrived by feeling; her music is what comes when she is at her most honest, without specific intention, and she aims to be in her songs the person she is in the world.
